Wolves head coach Nuno Espirito Santo is expected to ring the changes after his side beat Torino 3-2 in the Europa League.

Matt Doherty missed that match after being taken off at half-time against Manchester United on Monday due to illness and will be assessed.Burnley will meanwhile be without Robbie Brady and Steven Defour who remain on the sidelines.

And Danny Drinkwater, who is currently building up his fitness, is not expected to feature.Birmingham City were demolished by three goals in 12 second half minutes at the Liberty Stadium.

Blues had spent the first hour repelling constant Swansea City attacks – before strikes from Kyle Naughton, Bersant Celina and a Borja Baston penalty made the scoreline more accurately reflect the game.

Pep Clotet kept faith with the side which defeated Barnsley in midweek, with Lukas Jutkiewicz recovering from an ankle knock.However, the striker was a peripheral figure in a first half spent almost exclusively on the defensive.

Blues managed just a single corner and just two shots – but to their credit they resisted the in-form hosts.Nine minutes in Harlee Dean produced a sliding block after Yan Dhanda was found by Andre Ayew.

And on the quarter hour the Blues skipper barred Baston’s way to goal, forcing the Spaniard to curl wide when well-placed.Midway through the period Lee Camp collected a weak header from Andre Ayew.

But ten minutes before the break the goalkeeper was beaten by Dhanda’s shot. Thankfully Kristian Pedersen wasn’t and the Dane headed the half’s clearance opening off the line.

Blues’ resistance was eventually broken in the 63rd minute when a cross was cleared to Naughton just outside the area and he thundered it back beating Camp inside his near post.

Four minutes later the way back became even more steep as Fran Villalba was caught in possession inside his own half.

With one pass Celina was in behind and he belted a rising shot past Camp.With a quarter of an hour to go Marc Roberts tripped Dhanda as he stretched for Connor Roberts’ cross.

Baston calmly converted from the spot for his fifth of the season.
